echo park’s “a boys life” blog hop…

Welcome to the Echo Park Paper "A Boy's Life" Design Team Blog Hop!

Holiday Happenings

Today the Design Team is showcasing projects highlighting the "A Boy"s Life" collection.

 

I’d like to share this little box I embellished with products from this sweet boy line!  I think it will be so cute to sit on the shelf in my boys’ bedroom.

I simply covered the star-shaped box with patterned papers included in the 6x6 paper pad (I LOVE these 6x6 pads- they are the perfect size for projects like this!) using mod podge.

To add the airplane, I placed the sticker on cardstock and cut out around the edges.  Next, I added white floral wire between the plane layers, curled it around a pencil, and poked it through the box top, twisting to secure it underneath.
